U.D.P. Warns More Firings to Come

The United Democratic Party has thrown its support behind the fired employees, claiming in a press release that more firings are to come because it is aware of what it says is a long list of persons at City Hall targeted because of allegedly being U.D.P. supporters. The U.D.P. accuses Mayor Bernard Wagner of going back on its public statements that the council would not take measures to terminate anyone’s service and notes that the new Council has also halted the property tax discount program for senior citizens and discontinued the senior citizens food pantry program. The release also notes that the previous council hired more than one hundred fifty employees when the sanitation contract ended – not mentioning that it was after public protests and intervention from Central Government – and that many of these were known P.U.P. campaigners and supporters. The U.D.P. ends by calling on the Belize City Council to do the right thing and reinstate the individuals fired without just cause and cease and desist with any further unjust terminations.
